package org.springframework.web.servlet.view;

import org.springframework.util.ClassUtils;

 * Convenient subclass of {@link UrlBasedViewResolver} that supports
 * {@link InternalResourceView} (i.e. Servlets and JSPs) and subclasses
 * such as {@link JstlView} and
 * {@link org.springframework.web.servlet.view.tiles.TilesView}.
 * <p>The view class for all views generated by this resolver can be specified
 * via {@link #setViewClass}. See {@link UrlBasedViewResolver}'s javadoc for details.
 * The default is {@link InternalResourceView}, or {@link JstlView} if the
 * JSTL API is present.
 * <p>BTW, it's good practice to put JSP files that just serve as views under
 * WEB-INF, to hide them from direct access (e.g. via a manually entered URL).
 * Only controllers will be able to access them then.
 * <p>Note: When chaining ViewResolvers, an InternalResourceViewResolver
 * always needs to be last, as it will attempt to resolve any view name,
 * no matter whether the underlying resource actually exists.
